Most CNCC classes to go online after Thanksgiving photo

RBC | CNCC administrators have made the decision to shift most classes online after Thanksgiving. Some classes that require in-person learning, such as the aviation maintenance and National Park Service programs in Rangely, will be on campus “for an additional undetermined amount of time.”

Keith Peterson, vice president of instruction, stated in a letter sent to faculty, “This decision was not handed down by the Governor’s Office, either of our county Health Departments, or CCCS, this is simply a proactive decision by administration made in the interest of keeping our CNCC family safe for the holidays.”

The school plans to have in-person learning for all programs and both campuses starting again in January.

Students in dorms will be allowed to stay in residence halls if they don’t have a place to go during the Thanksgiving break, but will still attend classes remotely. Faculty will have the choice to work from home or on campus.

President Ron Granger thanked staff and students in a letter, stating, “From our health departments to our hospitals, we have received compliments on how we have handled this situation. In one conversation it was even mentioned that we are a model for others.”
